Stuart Dunkel (Born 1952)
Painter and musician Stuart Dunkel grew up in Fairlawn, New Jersey, the youngest son of two psychologists. His interest in art emerged in early childhood, but an art education class that his mother enrolled him in at age five proved to be a “horrible experience”. In the short term, that was the end of the young Dunkel’s interest in art. His attention turned to music, specifically to the clarinet which ultimately led him to a successful career as a classical musician.
